MARiculture Technical INnovations In Sweden (MARTINIS)
Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences and SWEMARC, the SWEdish MAriculture Research Center, University of Gothenburg, Sweden in collaboration with the graduate school of Engineering (Hiroshima University) and the department of chemical engineering (Lund University) (Since 2018)
The overall goal of the project is to develop novel land-based multitrophic aquaculture systems beyond current state-of the art that will be used to build and diversify the Swedish aquaculture sector in a sustainable way.
Specifically, it aims to combine Swedish membrane technology with the use of Japanese marine Anammox bacteria as source of waste water treatment in recirculating aquaculture system.
The MARTINIS project is a collaboration between the Swedish universities of Gothenburg and Lund and the Japanese university of Hiroshima that was forged within the frame of the MIRAI project (2017-2019). Currently, the projects was awarded funding from STINT (Initiation grant), the Swedish foundation for international cooperation in research and higher education and the Helge Axelsson and Wilhelm och Martina Lundgrens foundation to initiate their experiments.
